Unit Study: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

January 15, 2017

Unit Study: Harry Potter and the Goblet of FireIt is time to head back to Hogwarts for Harry’s fourth year with Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire (Book 4)! I’m excited to share this newest unit in our Harry Potter unit study series.

This time around, Harry and his friends see the Quidditch World Cup, meet wizards from around Europe at the Triwizard Tournament, and battle Voldemort himself as he rises to power once more.  This book marks a distinct change in the series – what began as children’s books has matured into the Young Adult genre as Harry becomes a teenager. This book gets darker than the last three, so keep that in mind when deciding if your child is ready for this unit study.

In this unit, you will continue your Magical Terms and Spells Glossary, Magical Devices Guide, Travel Guide to the Wizarding World, and the Weekly Prophet. As always, there are copywork/dictation passages taken from the novel, as well as vocabulary and discussion questions to help you get the most out of the story.

Hogwarts courses As always, I have included a Hogwarts course for your child to study – in this unit we’re going to focus on Transfiguration! How does Transfiguration translate to a “muggle” course? We’ll be studying Chemical changes, states of matter, the basics of Physics and how things are made! Your child will conduct experiments, study the 4 states of matter, and create their own Rube Goldberg Machine with items they find around the house.

This unit will take approximately 3 weeks to complete and is appropriate for upper-elementary and up. The PDF file is 50 pages and includes a full schedule, project ideas and 15 activity pages. For a brief visual overview, check out our video below:

Harry Potter Unit Study Frequently Asked Questions:
Do we have to start with the Sorcerer’s Stone unit study, or can we jump in at any of the books?

Yes and no. While these unit studies are semi-standalone if they had to be, they are designed to be completed in the order that the book series ran. Like the storyline in the books, the unit studies continue to build off of each other as they progress. You will start several activities such as keeping a glossary of magical terms and spells or creating a field guide of magical devices, to name a few. These will be used through the unit study series and new activities and additional entries will be completed in subsequent lesson plan.

If we already read the book, do we have to read it again to complete the unit study?

The unit study is designed to enhance the reading (or re-reading) of the book. While you are going through the chapters, vocabulary words are pulled out and activities are performed that correlate with what you are reading. This is the perfect unit to complete on your first reading of the book, as well as a perfect companion for reading the book again and diving deeper into the lore and story.
